I recently did a fresh installation of windows xp pro sp2 on a new build. I installed the default configuration. I used the retail CDs for the installation.

What windows components can/should I uninstall/disable? For example, can I safely uninstall windows messenger?

Thanks,
Paul

Yes - windows messenger, msn explorer including several others (don't have the list handy at the moment) can be safely uninstalled.

TIP: The next time you have to do a reinstall, just use an answer file (unattend.txt, winnt.sif) to customize the installation...

Could you elaborate? I don't understand what this means.

Thanks,

If you can find the list, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
